2015 was an interesting year. I went bonkers due to unemployment and going stir-crazy. Despite that it was best year of my life because I got to attend my first FEST. I met some of my dear friends and heroes for the first time in person. I had never been happier in my life. I was looked after like their sister. For those times, I owe them everything. Thank you to everyone who gave to the GoFundMe campaign and made it a wonderful experience. I could write a book about it. I cried tears of happiness. I love Jared, Johnny, Jan, Mike, Blake, Guli, Billy, Tom, Chris, Forrest, Tim and everyone who embraced me.
America and the world in general were plagued with mass shootings, bigotry, extremism, terrorism and insanity. It’s always been this way but this year, it really broke my spirit and left me in shambles. My seemingly never-ending battle with debilitating depression and anxiety continued. Thank you for your kind words and support. When appointment and extra efforts seem fruitless, I know I have you all and it makes it all worthwhile.
Other highlights included getting a letter from my hero, Sam Esmail, creator of my favorite television series, Mr. Robot. My jaw dropped and my heart was filled with joy. Remember that a little kindness goes a long way. Music sort of took a backseat to my excitement of hugging and meeting my pals. I did feel a connection with some records though. Maybe you’ll find some gems on this list. Also, be sure to pick up my latest compilation “Hope.” All proceeds from the name your price download go to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
